Getting a Root Canal in London SE1

06 / 02 / 2013

In dentistry, there are lots of different procedures and treatments that your dentist can employ to put right any problems that crop up in your mouth. One such problem that is always cropping up in London SE1 is tooth decay and it comes in a couple of main guises. Once bacteria have settled onto the surfaces of the teeth, the acids that come out of these bacteria will start to eat away at the enamel. It left to continue unchecked, these acids will inevitably break through the surface of the tooth. You will at first suffer discomfort from sharp pains whenever cold or hot things are placed on the tooth but at this juncture, you may only have to have a filling done. But sometimes the pain may subside and you may decide that it was just a ‘passing’ problem. In reality, this isn’t the case and the whole of the inside of the tooth will become affected and you will be running the risk of an abscess forming. To solve this problem and save your tooth, you will need a root canal. This treatment was once a painful operation to perform, but lasers have made this a very routine and painless procedure. The pulp within the tooth needs to be removed so that the dentist can get to the roots and remove them as well. Then once done, the tooth will be cleaned and then filled. Depending on the level of decay to the tooth, you may need a crown fitted in order to restore the size of the tooth
